Hi Amtan, I tried checking online but i can't find specific to your request. One thing I found which ...

My apologies for not being clear. I am already using the 米家 app on my iPhone. Many of its screens and instructions have English language translations but as those translation are not very accurate, they are a little confusing. It also does not help that my mandarin is rather lacking. 8A4D8BC6-4209-4DE2-A896-4BAB99E2FB66.jpeg

Thanks!!

Did not realize that MiHome app looks and presents different options depending on the locale you choose. The UI in the video does not look 100% as mine does as I see slightly different options in mine compared to theirs but the video did give me an idea of where to look.

The robot's doing a mop at the moment but when its done, I'll post some screenshots and describe how to do it as soon as I've played around with it and set a schedule.

Found another video that shows how to sewt a schedule up.. its not as obvious as one would like it to be as scheduling in the MiHome app is also used in the scheduling of other Xiaomi gadgets.

Mi Vacuum - Help with setting up automated cleaning schedule.

To set up a schedule,

1. launch MiHome app.
2. tap Mi Home icon on bottom right corner
3. tap the icon representing the vacuum device that you've already added to your profile.

Doing so should display a map that the device previously made of your location to be cleaned

4. tap the Settings icon in the top right corner of the map. (represented by icon with 3 dots)



5. tap the Timer category



6. click Add Timer icon at bottom of option screen



7. Specify values for the 3 different conditions for the schedule ie. Start Time, Repeat frequency, Cleaning mode.




    (I suggest starting with the  Repeat condition first before moving on to one of the others)

8. click OK to save the schedule item you have configured.



If you make a mistake, tap the item saved and tap the "Clear" button.

The above steps allow you to set up a simple sweep or mop schedule. I am yet to figure out how to set up a zone cleanup or to specify multiple rounds of cleaning with one setup.

Glad to hear your success, Amtan! Happy auto house cleaning! :)

Chinito,

Thank you for your help and hint. I would not have been able to figure it out if you hadn't pointed me in the right direction.

can i ask where did u buy the mi vacuum? i was thinking of getting one but not sure where buy

you did not mention where you were from. If you google where to buy these, you will be presented with a list.


I have a gen 2 which i got from a local importer They have both Gen1 & 2 Xiaomi vacuums as well as a bunch of vacuums from other brands as well. They are conveniently located in IMM and they repair all sorts of robot vacuums.

I'm not sure of the forum's rule around posting third party vendor links so i will send you a PM.

Looking at the options, it looks like it is possible.. though I've never gone through the steps of actually doing so.
